The King’s Kitchen

About this session

SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) | Subject: History | Topic: Tudors | Session Type: Classroom-based, Route-based

What was life like at court during the reign of King Henry VIII? How was everyone fed?

Pupils will find out about the workings of the Great Tudor Kitchens at Hampton Court Palace and about how the great feasts were organised and prepared.

This session is based partly in a classroom and partly on route in the palace. It will provide pupils with the opportunity to explore new environments and to develop their social and emotional skills through:

  • A rhyme about exploring the palace
  • Handling objects
  • Trying on Tudor costume (with an opportunity to wear into the palace)
  • A sensory tour around the Great Tudor Kitchens where pupils undertake a ‘find the same’ activity
  • Herb crushing activity using wooden pestle and mortar in situ in the kitchens

This session is suitable for pupils with MLD, SLD and PMLD, aged between 6 and 16 years, who attend special schools or units.

You will also have the opportunity to make a request for the presenter to be in costume, should this be appropriate.
